Referral Checklist and Care Map

Your patients will need to gather pathology, imaging and medical records if their breast images and biopsies were done outside of the BIDMC system. We have prepared a checklist for your patients to use to gather all necessary materials before their first appointment.

Following your patient's visit in the BreastCare Center, we will forward to you a copy of the clinical dictated note and a copy of the care map we give to the patient. We are always available to discuss patient progress and care, and are committed to staying in close touch with you regarding your patient's status.

The Breast Pathology Consultation Service at BIDMC provides enhanced services for difficult and problematic breast cases.

To refer a patient for a diagnostic exam, please call 617-754-9500. Diagnostic imaging is offered at several of our area locations:
